The Slippery Rock University women’s volleyball team lost 3-0 to Indiana University of Pennsylvania on Friday, losing by sets of 25-13, 25-20, and 25-21.

Senior Sarah Cadwallader had nine kills and freshman Morgan Tyree had 10 kills.

Junior Caroline Houston had seven kills and 13 digs and sophomore Janna Reilly had 23 assists and 12 digs.

Senior Hannah McShea had 16 digs and senior Hayley Wilson had three blocks.
The ladies traveled to California University of Pennsylvania on Saturday, but again they were downed in three sets, losing 25-13, 25-13, and 25-16.

Houston had six kills and 11 digs and Wilson had four kills. Freshman Shelby Obitts had one service ace.
Reilly had 15 assists and McShea had 11 digs. Sophomore Michelle Hren had one solo block.
The team finished the weekend with an overall record of 13-10.
Head coach Laurie Lokash thought that the team wasn’t clicking quite right all weekend.

“We didn’t gel as a team at times; we’ve had some injuries, so the line-up hasn’t always been consistent,” Lokash said.

She went on to say that the team also has had some inconsistency.
“We’ve also had some fluctuating levels of play as a team,” Lokash said. “We know what we have to do, we just need to find it in ourselves and get it done.”
The Green and White hosted Emory University for a home match on Tuesday night as a part of the “Dig for the Cure” event that raised money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation for breast cancer research and awareness.
The ladies lost again in three sets, losing 25-22, 25-19, and 25-11.  This was the team’s third-straight 3-0 loss. Cadwallader had 13 kills.

Hren had five kills and three blocks.  Houston had four kills and seven digs and Tyree had four kills.  Reilly had 26 assists and McShea had 10 digs.
The ladies now have an overall record of 13-11, with a 6-5 record in Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) matches.
